06 - Circuit Tools - macOS Map

Map Overview

The Map pane shows both the circuit overlay and the line taken by the selected lap(s).

The trace from the fastest lap will be automatically selected and displayed when a file is loaded. A second lap can be chosen to compare against using the Laps area (a maximum of 2 laps can be selected for comparison). If multiple files are loaded, the fastest lap from each file (maximum of 2) will be automatically selected and displayed for comparison.

The fastest lap, or if only one lap is selected, will have a green trace, the second selected lap will have a red trace.


The vehicle position is identified as a red cross X cursor on the map. Moving the cursor within the Graph area will also move the cursor within the Map area.


There are a series of buttons and other operations as shown below.
